Set on the south-eastern tip of the Malaysian state of Johor, The Els Club Desaru Coast is home to 45-hole of Championship golf courses; Ocean Course, a 27-hole layout designed by 4-time Major Champion, Ernie Els and Valley Course, a further 18-hole designed in collaboration with Els’ long-standing friend and fellow major champion, Vijay Singh.

The Els Club Desaru Coast – Ocean Course

The Ocean Course, Ernie Els’ signature championship design, features three distinct loops of nine holes; the Lakes, the Coast and the Ridge.

Its off course facilities perfectly complement the stunning golf on offer, with a 45,000 square foot contemporary clubhouse, complete with private function rooms and casual dining restaurant which provides a modern twist on comfort food.

Accessible from both the Ocean Course and the Valley Course, The Els Performance Golf Academy is Ernie’s latest effort in sharing his success story across the globe; giving juniors and adults an opportunity to learn the game the way it should be played, adopting an individualized approach using the most up-to-date technology, as well as diagnostic and teaching strategies.

The EPGA Par 3 Academy Course is great fun for the whole family. Located adjacent to The Els Performance Golf Academy, the holes range in distance from 65 yards up to 169 yards. With 2 sets of tees aptly named the “Big Easy” and “Little Easy” tees, advanced players get to hone in on their approach play while those new to the game boost their confidence from the shorter “Little Easy” tees. Its unique design allows the course to be played in many different directions, which is great for corporate events and team-building programs.


The Els Club Desaru Coast – Valley Course

The 18-hole Valley Course is a true test of golf, complete with elevation changes and breathtaking scenery. Meticulously designed by Ernie Els Design in collaboration with 3-time Major Champion Vijay Singh the Par 72, 7,200 yard golf course, is a terrific compliment to the Ocean Course.

The Valley Course provides golfers of all skill levels with the chance to use a variety of shots throughout their round as they traverse the rolling landscape and natural course of Desaru Coast.
